The DIA Gives an Official Response to LevantReport.com Article Alleging the West Backed ‘Islamic State’

May 27, 2015 by Brad Hoff 2 Comments

ON FRIDAY, MAY 22, I contacted the DIA Public Affairs office seeking official response to my May 19 article entitled, 2012 Defense Intelligence Agency document: West will facilitate rise of Islamic State “in order to isolate the Syrian regime”. DIA Public Affairs did not respond at that time.

YESTERDAY (5/26), THE DIA CONTACTED ME via email and requested that I submit my questions. Today, May 27, DIA Public Affairs spokesman James M. Kudla contacted me via telephone at 1:37pm (Eastern Standard Time) and agreed to give an official DIA comment to my questions concerning the declassified 2012 DIA intelligence report released through Freedom of Information Act request to Judicial Watch (14-L-0552/DIA/287-293).

THE BELOW IS A FULL TRANSCRIPT of the phone interview. Permission is given by Levant Report to freely copy and circulate.*


James Kudla [JK]: In response to the questions you submitted through email… As noted in the document itself, it’s an informational report and is not finally evaluated intelligence, and the redacted sections in the document released under FOIA means it is not a complete document.

Brad Hoff [BH]: Does this document forecast in 2012 that the external powers supporting the Syrian opposition would allow an Islamic State in Eastern Syria in order to isolate or put military pressure on the Syrian regime?

JK: I have no comment on the contents of the document, nor on your interpretation of the document in your article. To reiterate, the document is raw information and has not been interpreted or analyzed, so it is not a final intelligence product.

BH: Does this document affirm that the DoD knew that what the document refers to as the West was supporting an opposition insurgency in Syria that had elements of Al-Qaeda in Iraq, or AQI, within in?

JK: I do not speak for the Department of Defense, only for the DIA. For the DoD you would have to call the Pentagon’s Public Affairs desk. I have no comment on the contents of the document.

BH: Can you confirm that this particular document FOIA released, marked 14-L-0552/DIA/287-293, was circulated among the Joint Staff, USCENTCOM, CIA, DHS, Dept. of State, SecDef office, and those agencies listed under the header?

JK: I can’t confirm how it was circulated or who read it, but we can confirm that copies were sent to its addressees listed in the header information.

BH: Are you able to dispel some current headlines that say the West aligned itself with ISIS during 2012 or at any point during the conflict in Syria?

JK: There are a lot of headlines circulating, I cannot evaluate each one. I cannot comment on that.

BH: Would you like to take this opportunity to dispel any accusations currently circulating?

JK: I have no comment on that.

BH: Are you able to at least deny that the DIA’s analysis revealed that the West backed ISIS at some point during the conflict in Syria?

JK: No comment. I have no additional comments for you.

—END INTERVIEW

The above is official comment given to Brad Hoff from:

JAMES M. KUDLA, PUBLIC AFFAIRS OFFICER, OFFICE OF CORPORATE COMMUNICATIONS, DEFENSE INTELLIGENCE AGENCY, DIA HQ N635i

    There is nothing to “Comment”, because there was no comment! In Real Life, a “no comment” comment means the answer is “Yes, but I can’t comment.”

“War on Syria: Gateway to WWIII” (118 pages) attempts to cover the intricacies of the West’s methods of unconventional warfare and how they’ve manifested themselves over the last several years, finally miring Syria in a state of war. The book also looks at how the violence in Syria is just one part of a much larger geopolitical strategy, and where it may lead next.

Free e-Book: Source material on plight of Syrian Christians and refugee crisis

The war in Syria is growing increasingly worse every day, and it is affecting every Syrian citizen, regardless of ethnicity or religion. But just like in every war, the situation for minorites is even more horrifying. The Christian minority in Syria has no militia and is targeted by everyone. Christian Assyrians/Syriacs and others have become the number one targets for criminals and terrorists. Nuri Kino, journalist and author, has met and interviewed close to a hundred Christian Syrian refugees. He gives voice to this otherwise silent minority in a personal report.

This week, the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran announced that their support of Syria will be unlimited. Over the past few weeks Iranian military leaders, both Republican Guard and the Al Quds brigade in particular, have assessed the situation on the ground. A plan of action has been developed and is being implemented at this time. No other source has this information. Information in the press is fabrication and conjecture. What is known and what can and will be told is here and will be nowhere else. Reinforcements from both Iran and Iraq have begun arriving in Syria… Read more »

David, you just could have given the VT link in which the article was published.

Sicel:
Yes, David could have linked to the article; the other side of it is that he cut out the middleman, and presented the article. Unless the post leading into the article is compelling, I quite often don’t click on the link. I probably miss a lot of good information, and I suspect that there are a lot of others on SyrPer who skip links as well. david does not normally post full articles, so I’m not faulting him for this instance. Just sayin’.

That’s true Ark! Some people on this site now are even avoiding reading VT articles. Maybe, that’s the reason. Anyhow, I’ll always provide links, as I feel it’s important to know who’s providing the info.

Sicel:
I don’t know about you, but I’ve a dozen or more sites which I check regularly, read the articles and sometimes post links to them; I also read most of the posts on SyrPer which sometimes include linked articles if the post header is compelling, but I don’t have time to read all of the linked articles so, I’m sure I miss a lot, and don’t post links to many articles I find of interest but which the general readership may not. If the day were 96 hours long I could get more read, but it’s not. Bummer.

In future, you might attribute the article by mentioning the source in your post., maybe at the bottom: “From blah-blah .com”. Just an idea.

Thanks Ziad for going to source. The evildoers are now cornered, hoist with their own petard. The dreaded Guardio’s Seumas Milne even writes on the DIA scandal, and the Colonel Blimps at ‘Comment is [Un]Free’ are at sixes and sevens.
It is amusing to see the imperialists, Arab-haters, Zionists and chauvinists fulminating against the revelations of Milne, their former confabulator. Confusion reigns in the ranks of the Atlanticists.
I sure hope david is on the money. It would be of interest to know his source.

Those running the USA are at a stage where they no longer worry about what the public think of how they operate, the Government knows it can do what ever it wants with impunity. This out of control Terrorist State cannot keep destabilising legitimate Governments and murdering millions of innocent civilians from one collapsed country after another they’ve destroyed.

I can’t wait for their eventual demise.

As usual, thanks for the great articles Ziad.

Hass: The US is a failed State, and feel that they MUST do whatever they think it takes, in order to prop the State up for just a little bit longer. If their actions result in in a civil war on this continent, again, what do they care? they can always hide out in their bunkers, mewed up with a mob of others just like themselves – – provided they haven’t managed to make good their escape to join their stolen money somewhere. Personally, I’ve no moral or ethical objections to nailing corrupt politicians to their own front doors with… Read more »

In this article he writes about Poland Ukraina and something about Syria.
I Wish he is in mistake.

The non denyal at the very last question summs up it all, the DIA could not deny the allegation that the US Government helped ISIS.
Ziad, tks for re submitting it.

Canthama:
To not comment on an allegation is not normally considered an admission of guilt – – except when governments do it. In the case of the US government, denial is considered an admission of guilt, ‘no comment’ is considered an admission of guilt, and an admission is considered to be a fig leaf covering even greater guilt which will, hopefully go unnoticed.in the euphoria over finally getting the government to cop to something.

Personally, I think that any military member who dishonors the American flag by displaying it reversed should be abandoned on foreign station. Fuck ’em.
